The story behind Santa Catrina...


We are a group of friends with a passion for real Mexican food, family and traditions.


M

exico's gastronomic offering is so vast and rich in flavors, spices and colorful ingredients and yet so different from what it is usually associated with. So we decide, to embark on this venture of sharing the hidden treasures of our world-famous Gastronomy with our friends, neighbors, family and beloved community in South Florida.

Inspired by the traditional Mexican celebration “Día de los Muertos”, our goal when we created Santa Catrina was seeing people gathered around food, sharing happy moments and creating life-long memories.


Come and celebrate life with us at Santa Catrina!!

Food for the soul, food to share, food to gather.


Mexican Cuisine attained status of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2010.

La Calavera Catrina


C

atrina La Calavera Garbancera ('Dapper Skeleton', 'Elegant Skull') is a 1910–1913 zinc etching by the Mexican printmaker, cartoon illustrator and lithographer José Guadalupe Posada. She is offered as a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolution era. La Catrina has become an icon of the Mexican Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
